Hidden Stress Hazards of Remote Workers
If you work remotely, reach out for help before you begin "adapting" to potential stressors of your position in unhealthy ways. Don't let frustrations drag on. Research shows remote workers can face many unique challenges, including loneliness, inability to process stress with peers, irritability from interruptions at home, go-it-alone technology issues, worrying about completing tasks correctly, resentment from being unable to "switch off" from work to non-work, feeling frustrated at being unable to relax because of unfinished work only steps away, and parenting conflicts with guilt at being unable to attend to child needs.
